8:03 am
that are called viper teams butu they're the security teams that basically just scan the crowdant and they're trained to watch for anything suspicious. they sometimes use caninesse cin trained to sniff out explosivesi and so we would scan the numbern of team that is can be used notd only at airports but even att transportation like amtrak andra metro and also do significantly more training for our securityit professionals for the kinds ofah things that happened outside tht security perimeter. so this would be in addition tot the normal tsa screening we wane to give people a little moreittl sense of confidence as theire as coming into airports or train t stations that there's going tooo be eyes on the securityec situation.tu >> right. we saw in the wake of whatn th happened in brussels that thes t brussels airport them going asog far as to actually drop peoplero off away from the airport that a you would have to then be b essentially shuttled even to tht front gate of the airport. of th we're not talking about goingboi that far at this point.oi just having additional presencec correct? >> that's right. that's r we don't want -- the airport experience shouldn't be auldn't
8:04 am
that's not what we're looking for. but we do want people to feel safe traveling.raveli air travel is just like a cornerstone of the americanme economy, and also, so many of us engage in air traveling to visi family members.rs. so it can't be just a superer hardened experience but just atu little more security presencee outside what is the normal tsa security zone i think will be wl very very helpful.pf it can reduce the risk of a of brussels like tragedy and it can also travelers more confidence.e >> when it comes to securityec issues typically those tend to have an easier time workingsi tm their way through congress.s. but did you say additional fundf much are we going to havegoing h support for this? >> i think this one is a bipartisan initiative.tiat steve, i feel real good aboutd t it. we have an faa billaa b reauthorization bill on theiz floor of the senate right now.eh this is an amendment to that bill.bi but thus far we've gotten verytv good feedback on it both fromoto democrats and republicans, so ao we take this bill up likely lik today and next week, i think
